There's a fashion show at 4.30pm before the evening’s music and open mic "Come and have a go if you think you're Bard enough!" – celebrating everyone’s West End stories.

If you have a story in mind, approach the NibCrib.

The whole thing is repeated on Sunday with a final performance of Romeo and Juliet on Bank Holiday Monday at the picture frame, on the promenade by West End Gardens, at 1.30pm.
